NSU RO80

NSU RO80

The world's first production Wankel-engined saloon. Caused quite a stir when first announced. Roadholding was excellent but engine reliabilty was initally a great let-down.

The Fintail body (Heckflosse) was introduced in 1959, finally replacing the aging Ponton in 1961. Mercedes offered both four-cylinder and six-cylinder models. The four-cylinder 190 can be easily identified by its round headlamps, as opposed to the large, vertical units used on the sixes.

The Ponton body style was introduced in 1953 as the sucessor to the 170 series. It lasted until 1961 when the Fintail took over.

1931 Typ 170 (W15)

The 1931 170 was quite advanced - its independent rear suspension set it apart from the competition. The swing axle rear design was later adopted by many other makes. The car also had central chassis lubrication and four-wheel hydraulic brakes,

The 170 V was introduced in 1937. The model got a couple of facelifts in the course of the years. In 1952 the louvres on the side of the bonnet (hood) were replaced by two horizontal strips. The spare wheel cover was an optional extra.

170 S (W136 and W191)

170 S (W136 and W191)

The 170 S was introduced at the Hannover show in 1949. It was based on pre-war designs. The bodywork was similar to that of the 230 (W153). The 170 S was built from May 1949 to February 1955. Its all-round independent suspension gave the car an edge on the competition.

190 SL (W121)

Overshadowed by the 300SL, the four-cylinder 190SL is a fine car in its own right. It was built from 1955 to 1963.

The new 170 must have looked almost futuristic (compared to its predecessor, the 1931 model) when it was announced.

The 170 H was rear-engined (H stands for Heck = Rear) and was in many respects not unlike the VW Beetle. It did not sell in large numbers and was cancelled in 1939.

220 (W187)

The 220, introduced at the Frankfurt motor show in 1951, was fitted with a 2195 cc six-cylinder engine that gave the car 80 hp. Bodywork was essentially the same as the 170 S, except for the headlamps now having been integrated into the wings.
